reeeeediculous.

bah. I've been cheering for Fedor since his debut in Pride when he crushed Semmy the first time... but how do you cheer for the P4P and HW king of MMA against a LW?

There are freak shows, then there is this.

I think Fedor is just ducking Kenny Florian.

Here's a pretty sweet pic from the match:




I really want to see the video for this.

EDIT: here is a review from someone who saw it:

Quote:
Fedor was basically playing with Aoki. He allowed him to get sub attempts like a flying armbar, a leg lock attempt, and even takedowns like the double leg and a nice seoi-nage.
Watching it though, you could very much tell that Fedor was allowing Aoki live and catch stuff for the sake of the fans. It didn’t stop him from picking him up and slamming him all around the place though, locking up subs of his own before letting go to stand back up. There was one instance where Fedor pounded the ground with a huge fist, right next to Aoki’s head—kind of a sign that, “hey, I can stop this at any moment, kiddo.”
Both were all smiles all the way through the exhibition though, so I imagine they were having lots of fun.

article from mmajunkie:

Size doesn't always overcome technique, but it sure helps.

In the latest only-in-Japan booking, fight officials pitted heavyweight star Fedor Emelianenko vs. lightweight stand-out Shinya Aoki in an "exhibition sparring match" that took place today.

The bout, which resembled more of a grappling session, ended when Aoki tapped out to his much-larger opponent.

The exhibition was part of Wednesday's Deep/M-1 Challenge event at the Differ Ariake Arena in Tokyo, Japan. However, because of existing broadcast deals in the U.S., fight officials ultimately decided to black out the Emelianenko vs. Aoki matchup from telecasts worldwide. (However, M-1 will make the fight available online for free beginning May 4.)

Emelianenko easily man-handled his opponent and suplexed him to the mat, according to a report from Sportsnavi.com, though a friendly tone accompanied the match. Emelianenko reportedly would give up a submission attempt to try another and even allowed Aoki to slap on a hold so he could power his way free. Aoki ultimately tapped out from an Achilles lock three minutes into the scheduled five-minute fight.

Because the matchup was an exhibition, neither fighter's record will be affected by the bout.

Emelianenko and Aoki, who both hold WAMMA world titles in their respective weight classes, are two of the most popular fighters in Japan.

Emelianenko, a World Combat Sambo champion who will compete in the Abu Dhabi Combat Club's submission fighting championships later this year, last competed in January when he defeated former UFC champ Andrei Arlovski at Affliction's "Day of Reckoning" show. As MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) recently reported, his next MMA fight could come this summer in Japan as part of a rumored Affliction/M-1/DREAM card.

The amazing thing about fedor is that he always look amazing. He, basically, dominated every fighter he has fought or has taken them out in devastating fashion. A lot of other top-ranked fighters are so inconsistent, but with fedor he always puts on a good show and proves why he is widely considered p4p king. Just because he fights exhibition matches or "freak" shows doesn't mean his skill is declining. Every time he comes in to fight, he dominates.

So this is the fight you are talking about?

Must have pumped the room full of laughing gas prior.
